1. A Scenic View
Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and amazing views are everywhere.

5. Home Gym
Home gyms were popular before the pandemic, but now many people feel they are almost a necessity. Incorporating a workout into everyday life has become the norm for many people. Still, they rarely have the time to get to the gym, or they would rather exercise in private without others staring at them (or at least feel that way).
A great home gym has a well-thought-out design. The room should be big enough to accommodate all your fitness machines and leave plenty of floor room for moving around or doing some cardio work.
If you make a home gym one of your non-negotiables, ensure you get the dimensions of the prospective or existing exercise room to ensure it will fit all of your equipment. Mirrors on all walls are a pleasant touch, and a bathroom next to the exercise room shows the designer had practicality in mind.
6. Smart Home Technology
Convenience and functionality have become a necessity in daily life for many people, and a house with innovative home technology has become an expectation rather than simply an amenity.
Home security cameras in the interior and exterior of your home will begin recording when they sense any movement and will send a notification to your phone so you can monitor the live feed.
Smart doorbells have motion sensors and will instantly start recording when it detects someone approaching your door. Once the visitor pushes the doorbell, it will send a notification to your phone, and you can see the person at the door and speak with them through your phone if needed.
Smart light bulbs and smart light switches let you decide when lights are on by letting you program the time you want the lights to turn on and off. Programming the lights when you are away will give a home invader the impression that someone is in the house and will keep them away.
Smart plugs give you control of lights, but they also let you control other home items like garden fountains and space heaters. You can pair Smart bulbs, switches, and plugs with a smart assistant like Amazon Alexa and Hey Google, giving you the convenience of hands-free control of all electronic devices throughout your home.
Smart thermostats are essential in any luxury home. You can set the temperature, keep the humidity at the perfect level, and keep energy usage at a minimum while you’re away.
